A TRIAL into an alleged sexual assault at a house in Chinnor has been restarted.

On Monday Christopher Perry began his trial at Oxford Crown Court.

The 28-year-old of Post Office Lane, Beaconsfield denies one count of sexual assault and another of assault by penetration, both offences alleged to have taken place at an address in the South Oxfordshire village.

Jurors in that trial heard an opening speech from prosecutor Matthew Walsh as well as a recording of a police interview the alleged victim gave.

The woman - who cannot be named for legal reasons - alleges that she was sexually assaulted by Perry after a house party at her home.

Yesterday, that same jury was discharged by presiding Judge Maria Lamb after it was revealed that at least two jurors would be unable to continue on the case.

Because of that the entire jury of 12 men and women were sent home.

After they were discharged a new jury was sworn in and the case was re-started the same day.

By the end of the day at court the second jury heard an opening address from the prosecution and saw the alleged victim's recorded interview.

Perry denies the two counts and the trial continues.
